Anthony Castronovo designed the Heliotropis, a combination of bronze, ceramic and glass in the shape of a flower. His outdoor sculpture features petals that will open during the day, close at night and are illuminated with an LED array.

The Heliotropis will be erected in Rumson, New Jersey with a target date of sometime this year.
